Better than laser: Why Business Inkjet Printers with RIPS are for keeps

Press Releases   •   Feb 22, 2019 12:12 GMT

In today’s modern workplace, tackling a huge printing requirement becomes easier with the myriad of business printers available in the market. These printers are equipped with advanced technologies, which make it faster to complete their day-to-day office work.

Among these cutting-edge technologies is the Replaceable Ink Pack System (RIPS), which is now integrated in some Business Inkjet printers. This technology is designed to provide the ease-of-use of a cartridge-based system combined with the high volume printing of an ink tank printer.

But the question now is—how can Business Inkjet Printers with RIPS really help organizations improve their business operations?

High productivity

For businesses with huge printing requirements, speed and page yield are crucial to ensuring productivity. With RIPS, printing is made even faster and more convenient since it has a far higher volume of ink compared to traditional cartridges.

A regular inkjet printer can produce eight to 10 pages per minute (ppm), while an inkjet printer with RIPS can produce up to 100 pages per minute and more than 75,000 pages before timing out.

For a better perspective, Epson’s WorkForce Pro WF-C869R with RIPS can print up to 86,000 pages in black and 84,000 pages in color without interruption. Equipped with PrecisionCore technology, this inkjet printer has no warm-up time, allowing for a first-page-out time of fewer than six seconds, as well as default print speeds of up to 24ipm and draft speeds of up to 35 ppm for both black and color prints.

Epson WorkForce Pro Business Inkjet Printers also operate like laser printers since the PrecisionCore technology allows the paper to move around a stationary or fixed printhead. Unlike regular inkjet printers, which utilize a single printhead commonly embedded in the ink cartridge, RIPS printers employ 11 printheads clustered together side by side.

All of these 11 printheads ensure that the device can print excellently and more efficiently. It also eliminates the issue of using the conventional printhead and cartridge arrangement, which forces the users to replace both once the ink cartridge is empty.

PrecisionCore also has up to triple the nozzle density of conventional Epson piezo printheads. These nozzles are roughly 20 microns in diameter and deliver small, round, repeatable dots about 40 microns across. This dot precision is particularly important for creating sharp text and fine lines.

Scalability

Aside from quality printouts, Epson Business Inkjet Printers with RIPS are also developed to tackle the complex paper-handling demands of businesses. With its flexibility features, each unit can handle different paper sizes and types.

Epson RIPS printers can be upgraded to include more paper cassettes. For instance, WorkForce Pro WF-C869R comes with a rear feed slot, which can handle up to 85 sheets, as well as two cassettes, which can handle 250 and 500 sheets, respectively.

The users may also opt to upgrade the unit and include two more optional cassettes, each can handle 500 sheets, and an additional cabinet placed at its bottom part.

Overall, each unit’s total input capacity can be scaled up to 1,835 sheets, depending on the business printing requirements of the user.

Cost-efficiency and minimized consumable wastes

The most engaging advantage of Business Inkjet Printers with RIPS is the fact that it costs less to operate and produces lower wastage.

With ink refills supplied in soft foil packs, businesses can recycle more efficiently and are spared from the hassle of arranging the disposal of cartridges. This means that it is easier for organizations to demonstrate their conservational efforts and improve the sustainability of office printing that will leave a smaller carbon footprint.

Furthermore, Inkjet RIPS printers, such as the Epson WorkForce Pro Business Inkjet Printers, use no heating elements and consume less energy than laser printers, which in turn reduces the running costs. And since they have a simpler mechanism with fewer periodic replacement parts, they require less effort for maintenance and with less downtime in business operations.

Now more than ever, businesses have the freedom to boost their operations by utilizing the accessibility, reliability, and high-quality attributes of their inkjet printers. And with game-changing inkjet technologies like RIPS, these tools become even more efficient in cutting costs and mitigating environmental impacts.

Epson’s Laser Projectors Display Innovative Applications at Epson’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase 2019

Press Releases   •   Jan 15, 2019 03:34 GMT

Bangkok, 14 Jan 2018 – Epson’s laser projectors were creatively deployed in innovative applications at Epson’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase and in a projection mapping performance at Siam Museum on 8 January 2019.

Epson’s Regional Laser Projection Showcase 2019

Epson’s latest laser projectors were showcased in a variety of environments at the showcase, highlighting the creative ways projectors can be deployed to enhance collaboration and improve productivity at work, as well as create new experiences for play.

A fashion designer workshop, a production room, a retail showroom and a staff lounge are some of the showcases that highlighted the versatility and innovation of applications using the interactive and ultra short throw capabilities of the projectors.

In the workshop, a fashion designer is able to easily communicate and receive feedback from the corporate team through the Moverio smart glasses and KDDI Augmented Reality Recognition software remotely. The team is able to give feedback on the designs through annotating on an ultra-wide 177-inch interactive panoramic screen, consisting of two EB-1470Ui projectors via video conferencing.

The production showroom showcases how the designs are printed on an apron. Designers or users are able to work on their design through a customised app on tablets using customised designs and templates, and can view how it looks on an apron through a projection from the LightScene laser projector, before sending to print on the digital textile printer that prints out in minutes. The LightScene projector uses colours and shape filters to mask the projection for a seamless viewing experience.

In the retail showroom, an interactive virtual fitting room utilising an ultra-short throw interactive laser projector enables customers to try on different clothing designs projected on their image before purchasing.

In the staff louge showroom, employees are invited to relax at the bar counter with interactive visual effects, with the EB-L610U laser projector enabling downward tilting installation. Staff can work out on a bike in a health cave with different scene landscapes projected by the sleek LightScene projector. They can also watch the big screen with the EH-LS100 ultra short throw home laser projector which projects up to 100-inches with a throw distance of 26cm.

Through these innovative applications, companies are able to imagine how Epson’s laser projectors can be utilised to improve their workflow and to bring new value to their businesses and end customers.

Projection Mapping on the façade of the Museum of Siam

Utilising two units of Epson’s brightest laser projectors, the EB-L25000U together with the ELPLU05 lenses, the projection mapping on Siam Museum weaves a brilliant visual tapestry of Thai culture, in a stunning outdoor projection display. Designed for installation flexibility, the EB-L25000U delivers 25,000 lumens of colour and white brightness at a contrast ratio of more than 2,500,000:1.
